I work at an amazing school that is completely dedicated to student success. The group of second grade students I have this year will benefit greatly from the opportunity to read, write and learn in an environment that supports the developmental needs of 7-8 year olds.
My students are incredible individuals with various needs and strengths that I strive to differentiate for on a personal level.
The progress my students have shown from their needs being met by generous donations is evident in the data and formative assessments I collect daily.
I need Orton-Gillinghan training in order to reach every standing every day inside of the general education classroom.This course will discuss how to teach fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension using the OG philosophy of multi-sensory, sequential, direct instruction. This approach will be incorporated into my already existing literacy program as well as stand alone.
Let me start by stating that I am not sure who allocated school funding towards plastic counters and non-kinesthetic letter tiles with magnets that fall out on day two, but I would seriously like to speak to them.
Why are we more concerned with buying cheap items in mass than making available research-backed professional development oportunities that assist students with needs that are not actually “special” they are just needs. Needs like proper lighting or comfortable seating. How about being able to instruct every child in the general education classroom?
This training will allow me to reach EVERY child EVERY day inside of the general education classroom and thus, negating the need for a pull-out remediation situation that often comes at a cost.
